What network allows the use of color codes in the channel name? It should be an illegal character.

Indeed, colour codes in a channel should not work if the network follows protocol (afaik). If I try and join a channel with a colour code in, I simply get the server returning the error "test Channel name contains illegal characters"

Therefore, cannot confirm, 6.15/XP Pro.

There seems to be quite a few different ways that servers handle it. Some block the characters completely, some accept the first part of the channel name (ie the letters before the codes) and some allow the full name including the codes.

Nope, per the updated RFC (2812 for client, as this is what I look at the most), you have the following lines:

chanstring = %x01-07 / %x08-09 / %x0B-0C / %x0E-1F / %x21-2B
chanstring =/ %x2D-39 / %x3B-FF
; any octet except NUL, BELL, CR, LF, " ", "," and ":"

As long as the channel starts with "#", "+", or "&", and doesn't contain those characters mentioned, you shouldn't have a problem (with most networks only likeing the "#")

Anyway, just did /join #06all_your_base and was fine, so I for me, the bug didn't happen.

But not all networks may like it, but they are valid codes.

//join #a $+ $chr(3) $+ 4red $+ $chr(2) $+ bold $+ $chr(15) $+ normal $+ $chr(35) $+ $chr(22) $+ reverse $+ $chr(9) $+ tab $+ $chr(1)

Works perfectly here (mIRC 6.15, WinXP). The last $chr(1) gives an extra line saying log file cannot be opened, I call that a feature for testing channel stuff that I don't want logged grin
Iirc earlier mIRC versions also couldn't open log files for channels containing a tab ($chr(9) or ctrl-i).

Maybe you have a script loaded that parses this incorrectly. Do you have the same problem with a copletely clean mIRC?
